My Home is my Museum
2pm, 23 November: discussion event exploring the notion of personal treasured objects with speakers Rachel Hurdley and Caroline Wright. Join them in sharing the stories, histories and objects from the people of Cambridge.
What do you keep on your mantelpiece? From curious to quirky, valuable and invaluable, we create family histories through memorabilia, keepsakes and heirlooms. My Home is my Museum is a performance about the emotional significance we place on our everyday objects. Join us on a walking tour where members of the public open up their homes and invite us in to explore and celebrate the objects displayed inside.
My Home is my Museum also includes an online collection of personally significant objects belonging to Cambridge residents, an exhibition and discussion event in collaboration with The Museum of Cambridge.
My Home is Museum is a key strand of Curating Cambridge: our city, our stories, our stuff, exploring collecting and curating from the personal and everyday perspective. The University of Cambridge Museums are pleased to support My Home is my Museum using public funding from Arts Council England.
